Paint with water/lime paste : dilute the pigment in some water to make it liquid before incorporating it into the paint.
Lime powder/cement/plaster : directly incorporate the pigment (up to 10% based on the weight of the binder), then mix in order to stain all of your binder.

These renderings can be similar for any white base mixed with this pigment. However, differences will be possible for the use of paints more or less loaded with titanium dioxide (white pigment), which will give a final color more or less light.
If you want to lighten a pigment, before coloring a transparent binder (linseed oil, wax, acryling binder, caparol, flour, etc), you can mix it with blanc Tiona 595 (white Tiona).
Color : medium brown with yellow tinge and transparent binder. Beige, a little bit yellow, with a white binder.

Made in Cyprus.
History : The shadow earth probably owes its name to the Latin "umbra" (shadow) that were used to fold the colors. Cyprus is the largest producer of shades in the Mediterranean basin. We find everywhere traces of these earths. They are taken in the form of clay making them accessible pigments and cheap.
